I am 54 years old and have been having daily pain due to an impacted wisdom tooth. Planning to have the surgery which will remove my 3rd and 2nd molars on my left side. The surgeon says that due to my age, deteriorated condition of the tooth and closeness of the tooth to certain nerves that there is a risk that I will have temporary or even permanent numbness and/or tingling sensation in part of my lower lip. If there is anyone out there who has had this type of surgery and has also experienced the numbness I would like to know if it affects your embouchure and playing ability. Thanks for any info.
